    Bought this from CDNN few months back. They got slew of them from Para Ordnance as they were dumping their stock from left over parts of the this discontinued platform. Supposedly they gave the rights back to AL Zitta and he is to continue on producing the rifle and going back to calling it the LR-300 Rifle.

    From CDNN
    $1300 for the Rifle, 10 Para mags, 5 Magpul Mags, Single point Sling

    I have added, Magpul BUIS front and rear, Magpul MOE, Burris Red Dot.

    Initial range test resulted in several double taps, triple bursts, and out right mag dumps. The hammer would not lock back and follow the bolt forward. In breaking it down and doing some research seems the light weight BCG (Half the size of a standard AR, and the heavy Op Rod spring combines with heavy standard FCG springs, and standard hammer) With anything other than Federal XM-193 it wouldn't function properly.

    So I then swapped out the standard springs for JP Reduced power spring kit (http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=7582/Product/AR-15-REDUCED-POWER-SPRING-KIT) and a JP Speed Hammer (http://www.jprifles.com/1.4.8.4_sh.php)

    The result what 100% proper function using my reloads, Federal XM-193, Sellier & Bellot, Winchester WWB, and multiple mags; C-Products, Magpul, Para,...

    Now I did have intermittent function with the TULA ammo, but I find this ammo is cheap for a reason. Inconsistent loads, and under powered. I also had some issues with my Thermold mags. However, the Thermold were only cheap banger mags for range use anyways.

    I liked the idea of this rifle, but don't know enough about the innards to justify the expense. The CDNN price puts it a little more in reach, but the discontinued part scares me off. What is proprietary and what is interchangeable?

    I remember looking at this closely before my AR build. I just couldn't see an benefit to this that you don't get from a standard AR
